What do I know? What do you know?

SEPTEMBER 17, 2011

With a little over a year left in my twenties I have been trying to put my "life" together. The funny thing is, I don't think it's necessarily the brink of my thirties that's bringing this on. Truth be told I've been questioning life and it's purpose since I was a kid.

When I was in my early teens I thought twenty-five was the coolest age of all time ever. In my naive heart I knew I would have it all figured out and together by then, surely. Then twenty-five came and went, and well having it all "figured out" was not on the agenda.

Now, almost twenty-nine I still feel like I'm all over the place. I'm starting to think that's just my natural state of being. Although I don't have all the answers to life as I know it, here's what I do know:

If you truly want to do something you will find a way to do it, if you don't all you'll find is an excuse.

Stay away from making permanent decisions based on temporary feelings.

Quality is always better than quantity. This rule applies to everything, especially people!

Not everyone is going to like you, that's ok. You don't have to like everyone and that's ok as well.

Some people will break your heart, your spirit, your hopes and your dreams. Sometimes life works out like that. Take what you've learned and walk away accepting that you've changed because of it. Another human being can only break you if you hold onto all their useless shit.

Don't be afraid of falling in love. Fear is crippling, love is worth it.

Live your life honestly, it's less stressful.

Time is valuable. Don't waste your time, or the time of others. EVER.

Hang out with people that love and encourage you, the other ones aren't worth the effort.

Keep gossip to a minimum. It's a part of life but it should not be your whole life.

Expectations ruin everything! If you expect too much be prepared to be disappointed. Not everything happens according to a carefully crafted plan, so live a little and go with the flow.

It is absolutely ok for things to go right sometimes, they don't always have to be a struggle.

Family, friends, love, health. Does anything else really, truly matter?

Take the time to appreciate people and what they do for you. Nobody likes to feel taken advantage of, returning a favor and gratitude are imperative.

If he cheated on her to be with you, he'll cheat on you to be with someone else. Math is not my strong suit but I believe it's something called probability.

Dating is so freakin' complicated. There is too many ways to define a "relationship". I can no longer keep track.

Actions speak louder than words, ALWAYS! This is not up for any sort of discussion, there is no and's, if's or but's about it. It is just plain simple truth.

What do you know?

7 Comments So Far:

  1. Have a goal/plan. It gives you something to work towards and keeps you focussed.

  2. I completely agree. I tend to have too many goals, inevitably ending up lacking focus. I need to get better at that for sure.

    As always, thanks for your input :)
